(KMOV) --  They say once you find what you love, you never work again a day in your life.  Well, truer words have never been spoken as it regards to Carlton Nebel. 

He's an 87-year old man who is believed to be the oldest high school umpire in the United States.

Nebel's been umpiring in St. Louis for 52 years and has no plans on stopping anytime soon.  He says baseball is in his blood and he just can't get it out.
